Rackley WAR opens second truck for Tate Fogleman in Nashville

Nashville Superspeedway is the domestic circuit for WAR Rackley, whose headquarters in Centerville, Tennessee, is about ninety miles away. For Friday NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the Lebanon Oval, the team will once again expand to two trucks as in 2021, this time forming the #26 Chevrolet Silverado for Tate Fogleman associate Matt DiBenedettoit’s number 25. Dickies, Realtree and CamoSpace are among the various sponsors that will appear on #26.

Fogleman, the reigning Talladega Truck Series winner, started the 2022 season with On Point Motorsports. After racing the first eleven races, in which he scored three top 20s with a best streak of twelfth in Las Vegas and twenty-third in points, he was replaced by Josh Bilicki, Joey Gazeand camden murphy for the next three races.

“I look forward to the opportunity to drive for Rackley WAR at Nashville Superspeedway,” says Fogleman. Curtis Sutton and Willie Allen have built something special and put the right people in place to make it happen. The team has been competitive all year, and I look forward to continuing the success they’ve had and making the most of this opportunity. It will be special for the city of Nashville, the home track of Rackley WAR. The city environment is unlike any other place.

For the 2021 Nashville Truck Race, the first since the speedway’s revival after a decade of inactivity, Rackley WAR opened #27 for William Byron in addition to lining up #25. Byron, the 2016 Truck champion, didn’t last long as his engine died after seventy-eight laps.

Sutton, co-owner of the team with Allen, leads Rackley Roofing who owns the naming rights to the Truck event.

“We’re really excited to be running the second truck with Tate Fogleman in Nashville,” Allen commented. “It gives our team the opportunity to collect race data with a second entry and Tate brings a level of experience to the team which we believe provides a great opportunity for us to race very well for the Rackley Roofing. 200 with Tate and Matt.”

DiBenedetto joined Rackley WAR for the 2022 season and is currently twelfth in the standings with six top ten finishes.
